It’s important for our organization to make connections with community partners to achieve lasting positive outcomes for all children, beginning at birth. We know that working together to build a stronger community will help us achieve our vision of an economically prosperous community where families are successful, and children thrive.

Child Care Stakeholders

The Child Care Stakeholder Community Meetings are designed to bring together child care providers, state lawmakers, local policymakers, business leaders, and other stakeholders to help find solutions to the child care crisis in our community. These conversations encompass funding, resources, staffing, and other childcare industry challenges.

Let’s Get Enrolled

Let’s Get Enrolled is a collaboration between the Partnership for Children of Cumberland County, Cumberland County Schools, and Action Pathways. Our goal is to provide Cumberland County families with a path to high-quality early education for their preschool-aged children through 4- and 5-Star licensed child care providers in Cumberland County, Head Start, and Title 1 programs. 

Family Connects

Every family needs support after bringing home a baby. The needs are different in each family. The Partnership for Children is proud to bring the evidence-based approach of Family Connects to our community. By providing support to newborns and their families in our community, we will improve health outcomes in our community.


Community Child Abuse Prevention Plan

The Partnership for Children is proud to be one of more than two-dozen organizations in a collective movement to ensure that all families and children lead healthy and prosperous lives. With a vision to make Cumberland County a safe and stable community where children are nurtured, and families thrive, our mission is to educate, empower, and support families so they can provide nurturing homes for their children.

Pathways for Prosperity

The imperative is clear: we need to build an infrastructure of opportunity to ensure all our citizens have a clear path to family-supporting work, that employers have the workforce they need to grow and innovate, and that our civic culture supports prosperity for all. The Partnership for Children is proud to be part of the anti-poverty initiative by leading the Early Education workgroup. We know, and research has shown, that quality early care and education can change generational poverty.
